More Lingerie Tips
Figure fixes don't get any easier than this: "A properly fitting bra will make you look taller and thinner by raising your bustline," says Susan Nethero, founder of Intimacy boutiques. The band on a bra provides 90 percent of the support, which is why it should be firm and level around your torso. "If you've got strap marks on your shoulders, you probably need to go down a band size and up a cup," she adds.
